Volkswagen will redesign the 2011 VW Polo hatchback and sedan for the US market, making both beefier and more Husky-size-friendly than the new 2010 VW Polo available in Europe.

Rather than just bring the US a Euro-styled Polo, which has come a long way in 35 years, Volkswagen of America CEO Stefan Jacoby believes we're all much too obese. Therefore, they're building us a bigger, more roomy set of Polos. Both will take dead aim at the Honda FIt and try to fill the $13K to $15K price-point below the Rabbit.

As a slender, American driving enthusiast, I am outraged! When will the discrimination end? No one builds a car to meet my needs. By catering to the large-on-average populous, the skinny have become a minority, and we need to be heard.

For too long, we have stood idly by and watched as the side bolsters that once caressed our svelte physiques have parted as if our mere touch disgusts them, refusing to hug us in a hard corner when we need it the most.

I, too, have a dream. In my dream, there is still such a thing as a compact pickup. In my dream, a Honda Civic does not outweigh a 1959 Buick Invicta. In my dream, a 3 series BMW is lighter than a 1987 7-series.

Join me, my lanky bretheren, and we too can move mountains. It'll just take more of us, because a first-gen S10 doesn't have nearly the payload of a crew cab F650.
